Ennis III sustained a right quadriceps contusion but is likely to be ready for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference first round against the Nets.
The Magic will continue to be without Mo Bamba and are already depleted with their bench minus Jonathan Simmons. In a back to back spot against James Harden scoring can be an issue. Yet look for the Magic to show early energy to get out in front and hold on ATS.

The Magic are 0-6 ATS in their last six games against Western Conference foes and I like that trend to continue Sunday with the Rockets coming to town.

Take the Houston Rockets minus the points versus the Orlando Magic.
Houston (24-17) has won eight of their last ten games with their 141-113
win over Cleveland on Friday.
